Ingredients

  • 1 lb. cooked chicken breasts shredded
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1-2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese optional
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the cooked and shredded chicken to a bowl, then add the mayo and pesto.
  • Stir to combine, then add salt and pepper as needed.
  • Last, either stir in the arugula and feta, or assemble your sandwich (if you're making sandwiches) by adding the chicken salad on top of bread, then sprinkling it with feta and arugula. Enjoy!

Notes

To make Paleo: omit the cheese from the pesto (or make sure your store-bought pesto is dairy-free), omit the feta cheese and then eat it straight out of the bowl rather than on a sandwich 
Storage: store chicken salad in a container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days
